Free Alzheimer’s research event to be hosted on campus

Our Salford Institute for Dementia will be proudly hosting the Alzheimer’s Research UK North West Public Engagement event on May 17, which falls within National Dementia Awareness Week.

The aim of this free event is to help you understand the bio-psych-social nature of dementia and local advances in dementia research, whilst learning more about local dementia support networks and initiatives.

This interactive afternoon will combine traditional poster presentations, lab tours, information points, performances and family friendly activities which will take place at the Peel Park Campus at the University of Salford. 

We will also be celebrating the launch of the ‘Hub’ space and the new dementia friendly garden at the Allerton Building, with opportunities for visitors to view the internal space, meet the team, talk to our dementia associates and participate in activities in our new dementia friendly garden.

Please register your interest to attend this free event here!

If you would like to volunteer on the day (i.e. to help with set up, chaperoning etc) then please get in touch with Dr Gemma Lace-Costigan ( or 01612955111).

This event will be held in collaboration with The University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University and The University of Liverpool.
